In Spring 2000 I visited the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, I was able to go inside the tomb and see the spot where the body of Jesus Christ was laid to rest, it was a sacred and special experience. I love this holiday and the good news it brings, just like the sign at the Garden Tomb reads "He is not here: for He is risen" that statement proclaims the completion of His earthly mission. We can find joy and peace in that knowledge.
*a picture of me at the Garden Tomb- a long time ago!
I saw this video and was so moved by it I had to share. Please take 3 minutes to watch it and feel the special spirit of this Easter season.
In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for He is risen.’”
—President Thomas S. Monson
